Just a skip and a jump to the Straits of Mackinac and the Mackinac Bridge.  (This is my favorite picture in this group).

There are dipping opportunities, but also…

Lots of signs like this.  But we have learned where it’s ok for furry people to swim.

There is lots of green grass to roll in.

Sometimes it’s nice to just look.

No shortage of shopping.  Mandy, this one’s for you! ❤️

There are trees to keep us shaded from the sun….

There are rain storms…whew, lots of those.

And the rain storms bring out the ghost ships.

There are lighthouses.  This is Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse.  It’s part of….

Michilimackinac State Park.  And don’t forget the abundance of seagulls!

And the fishflies.  Aka June bugs I think.  I always thought they were kinda cute.  Now the mosquitoes….not so much!!  My new perfumes are called ‘Deep Woods’ and ‘Off’.  They stink!  But I can’t survive here without them!

But with all this water…lakes, rivers and rain, and literally this rainforest…yup, there’s going to be bugs.

May we in the USA celebrate our freedom and independence with an understanding of how precious it is and how easily we can lose it.  May we demonstrate in our own lives the qualities we would like to see in our nation….peace, compassion, and justice…please add to the list as you see fit.

    Micky – I think this is one of my favorites of all your posts! LOVE the photographs!!! And the sentiments. I’m so glad for the photos because it is a part of the country I’ve never been. And you sound happy!!! love you! M-

    • Hi Marsha, thank you! Sometimes pictures say it all I think. I love trying to capture how I feel about it in the pictures. It really is a beautiful ‘water wonderland’.
      Unsalted and shark free. 😀

      Love you too girl!

    Thank you, Micky. Beautiful photos, heartfelt thoughts. Happy Fourth to you, too, and to the pups. 🎇🎆

    Wonderful photographs!!! I am wishing I was up there even though right now I’m at a wonderful lake in AL.

  4. Great post, Micky. I think I have a picture very similar to your favorite picture of “the bridge” from that motorcycle trip I took. I envy you being in the midst of all those beautiful trees, flowers, water, and places. It’s about time for me to get on the road again. Hope you have a good fourth. I would add understanding and acceptance to your list.
    Hugs to all,
    Pat

    LOVE THE PHOTOS MOM! IT’S BEAUTIFUL THERE! JASON NEVER TOLD ME 😉 LOL! HMMM…WONDER WHY YOU THOUGHT OF ME 😉
    MISS YOU! HAVE A FABULOUS 4TH OF JULY!

    • Hi Mandy!
      I went in the store cuz of the stripes…started taking pictures, and the sales lady was giving me the evil eye, so I explained that you love stripes and I HAD to show you! The whole store was stripes, almost.
      Yes beautiful! But so is everywhere!

    What a beautiful place! I’ve never been to anywhere near there, so I love traveling there vicariously.

  7. Beautiful.
    So…question. Could this be an area that you could spend your summers? Perhaps summers here and winters at the ranch in Arizona? I sensed before that you’re looking for a place to semi-plant.

    • Hi Cindy. Well, everywhere I go seems like I’m always asking myself that question. Could I live here… for awhile at least? And right now the answer is, probably not more than a month or so.
      But that could change, or not. There’s a lot of humidity generally, which I find very uncomfortable. And mosquitoes…
